Basyl moved into my neighborhood when he arrived from Poland and we became good friends. I have many memories of good times together in junior high and high school. My condolences to his family. RIP friend.

I was always envious of Basyl, he lived real close to Everett Jr High and I lived on 23rd & E. He was always fun and a great classmate. RIP Basyl and condolences to his family. Janet Jensen Albers

Basyl was at Everett Jr Hi with many of us who came from Park Elementary. I didn't know him real well, but he was always kind and polite. So sorry to hear of his passing. My condolences to his family. Rest in peace, Basyl!

Basyl and I were friends in Miss Howell's journalism class at Everett. He showed me how to light a Zippo lighter by passing it rapidly up and down his pants leg! Years later, I was working at CDC in Omaha and needed some plating work done on a component I was building. I called Lincoln Plating, and who should answer but good old Basyl. We had a good time reminiscing about old times. Rest in Peace old friend.

Basyl was one of the few people who intimidated me by his mature facial features. He looked like he would kill someone some day. Well, of course, after I got to know him much better, he turned out to be a really good guy. Funny how I formed a false impression based on appearances. I learned from this experience and thanks Basyl for helping md learn an important lesson - don't judge on basis of appearance. A good guy after all!!!

I didn't know Basyl well but he was a handsome classmate. I was adopted by a man from Poland so felt a little kinship with him. Sorry to hear he is no longer among us. He will be missed and his family has my prayers. I hate that we are losing so many of our class. Such good memories and good friends. We should be allowed to live forever.

I am surprised none of our teammates on the football team have posted comments. Having been a  recipient of Basyl's blocking and overall hard hitting and watching him play for 3 years, I think that he was arguably the toughest player we had. With Basyl and Jerry Shaw on the offensive line, our star back Bobby Williams was able to accomplish a lot more than he may have without blockers of their quality. If we ever had a fight on the field I wanted to be on Basyl's side. He was one tough dude. I was surprised he didn't play anywhere at the college level, at least I never heard that he did..
